    Do you think its okay for a man in a relationship to have attractive female friends?

    Many times in a relationship if one party has lots of friends of the opposite sex, it can cause distrust and break up the relationship.

    I believe that if in a relationship there is honesty and trust, there can not  be problems

    I agree with fucsia on this topic.

    And besides....
    Can you see a couple saying,"No, you can't befriend them honey, pick one that makes trolls look prettier."

    I think it all depends on the boundaries you and your partner have set for the relationship.  You should have relationship boundaries that you both agree on and feel comfortable with.  If it causes problems, and your relationship is important to you, then I would say it's not worth it.  But, it's definitely a question that should be discussed and negotiated with your significant other!

    Theirs noting wrong with that as long as you are confident enough that you really love your girlfriend.

    If a partner is insecure in  a relationship, distrust follows the insecurity.

    Personally I dont want a partner who spends a lot of time with friends and neglects our relationship. It s about balancing and priorities.

    Nobody wants to be suffocated by their partner either.

    Many times a man will be able to get along better with a woman friend, invite her over for dinner and make sure that you invite your male friends over for dinner

    Every relationship is different because people are all different. I have always said if I had female friends in my life before my wife or girlfriend, why should I stop talking to them or hanging out now? People should be able to hang out with whom ever they want as long as they are committed to their significant other. The problem is when people go a bit too far and something ends up happening that shouldn't have. Trust is a huge part of a relationship and if you don't have that with the person you are with, you may as well end the relationship anyway because it won't end up working out.

    Of course it's ok.  It would be unreasonable for either party to dictate who their partner can be friends with.  A friend is a friend, no matter what they look like.  (I agree with donnatru though, you should both be happy with the amount of time each of you spend with your friends, as opposed to with one another).
